Yesterday, I posted a blog entry here at Daily Kos and a few other websites that was, to say the least, not my best work. In fact, it was a total FAIL. Some might even say EPIC.
In order to rectify the dis-service done to all by the first erroneous article I had published, I will be posting a full retraction here based on observations and analysis provided by credible sources, but before that, I thought it might be helpful and fun to explore the reasons why blog entries become EPIC FAILs, and what the publishing blogger and commenting bloggers can do should such a situation of EPIC FAIL occur while traversing the intertoobz.
So, before addressing the aforementioned corrections regarding the EPIC FAIL blog entry that I posted yesterday, lets first turn our attention to what an EPIC FAIL is, and how a blog entry might become one.
What is EPIC FAIL, Alex?
The following video will explain what exactly a FAIL is and what it takes to make a FAIL Epic, but generally speaking it is any time when one person, group of people or object can not achieve it’s intended purpose or goal. What makes that FAIL Epic is simply how bad the performance is.
With this in mind, a blog entry, whether a full diary/article or comment, becomes an Epic Fail under the following circumstances.
1. Not based on fact/reality
2. Off Topic
I think these 5 examples cover the universe of blog EPIC FAILure perfectly, and though an EPIC FAIL of a blog entry can fall into more than one category, for the ones that just make you shake your head there is always the fifth choice, other, which could just as easily be labelled WTF and no one would know the difference, but I digress. We will cover WTF at some other time, it is a big subject to deal with, and one at a time is enough.
So, now that you have identified EPIC FAIL in a blog entry, what do you do?

Obama CAN NOT lose something that is already lost.
Short diary, but worth discussing.
I WANT TO KILL THIS MEME NOW!
Meme: Obama might lose Afghanistan without surge
NEW RULE: Idiots who were wrong about Iraq DON’T GET to give any more unvise about what the military should do.
Bush and Republicans LOST AFGHANISTAN the Minute they moved the debate to Iraq, like idiots.
Unvice = crappy advise from people who are always WRONG
Republicans, Joe Lieberman and the MIC want more war, and they want it bad. No strategy, no exit plan, just give us more troops and money or the Country is DOOMED, I say, DOOMED. And then the terrorists will win, they’ll get WMD’s, the Taliban will get stronger and al Qaeda will attack us again.
Blah, Blah, Blah, I’ve heard this bullshit before.
To which my answer to the Unxperts are: Didn’t you say that about Iraq?
